Fuji GSW645S pro (velvia 50 220 roll) and holga (ilford pan F+ 120), and I guess I have some fuji 400 B&W film in my rolleiflex that I need to finish off. And uhh 5 holders full of 4x5 160VC that I've been meaning to shoot.

Yesterday, I pulled out my Nikonos II underwater camera to shoot photograph a birch tree turning fall colors that is growing out of an old car on the Snake River river bank in Idaho ("Detroit rip-wrap"). I wanted the image reflected in the river so I paddled my kayak about a mile to get in position. I forgot what color negative film I had loaded so I bracketed heavily. I just purchased a cheap Mamiya RB67 on e-bay. I look forward to using it but probably will not be carrying it in my kayak.

About every two weeks I roll in a differn't camera into the bag. Change is good, I think. But for some strange reason this week it's a Zorki 4 w/ Jupiter 3 f/1.5 5cm. There's just something about that blue viewfinder glass and that huge air bubble in the middle of the front element. Maybe this will be the camera that makes the front page.
I doubt it.
Saturday I was shooting with a Kiev 4a and ran into a guy using a FED 2. Nice to see a kindred spirit, especially with most of the other cameras around being d***.

Yesterday went out shooting aspen color with an early Nikon FM with Series E lenses (28mm, 36-74mm, 75-150mm) loaded with Kodak slide film dated 2003.

Yesterday, I pulled out my Nikonos II underwater camera
Yesterday I went to the coast with my Kiev 60 & darn near turned it into an underwater camera when I found out the film counter had stopped working. But then common sense prevailed and I decided to keep it. Common sense is relative I guess bein' that I use a Kiev 60 in the first place:rolleyes:

My latest addition to my collection, which I do not know what to call.
I guess it is a Wirgin Adrette.
It is a bear to load as there is no opening back.
Sad to say all the frames had some weird cut of on the top right corner as if it did not get any exposure to that part of the negative.
I'll have to investigate that.
Other than that the frames looke very nice.

Using my last roll of Kodachrome 35mm in my Nikon FG.
Mostly, so far this week, a 4x5 Pacemaker Speed Graphic. I took it to the neighborhood Halloween parade Sunday, then tonight I put a Polaroid back on and took pics of kids and passed them to their parents. A lot of the kids also wanted the used flashbulbs.

This past Sunday I was out with the Wehman 8x10 with a JML 8-1/4" process lens, shooting on FP4+. I had the camera setup when an elderly gentleman strolled up and started observing me. We started chatting and after a while he asked if I would mind him watching me work. I said, of course not. When I was done focusing, I asked him if he wanted to look at the GG. He said yes, and mentioned that it had been 50+ years since he'd looked at a view camera GG.
I usually offer curious folks a view of the GG, and try to answer questions in simple terms. Most questions are usually of the "is this an old/antique camera" or the "are you a professional photographer" type. Some folks want to know the benefits of such a large camera.
Curiously, I have never encountered another LF photog when I've been out shooting, and rarely film shooters for that matter.
